Farah Khan sends Rs5bn legal notice to private TV, its anchor, Omar Farooq


LAHORE: Farah Khan has sent a legal notice to Umar Farooq Zahoor, Geo News and its anchor Shahzeb Khanzada on allegations related to Toshakhana.

Farah Khan, a close associate of Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, has sent a legal notice to Umar Farooq Zahoor, Geo News and its anchor on allegations of selling Toshakhana gifts.

A defamation notice has been issued for broadcasting false and fabricated news about Imran Khan and Farah Khan,  stating that Umar Farooq never met nor Farah Khan had any role in selling the watch. Under a well-thought-out conspiracy, fabricated and baseless allegations were made. Ahmed Noorani has also explained in his story that Farah Khan did not travel to Dubai in 2019.

The text of the notice states that the allegations are intended to damage reputation. Apologize or explain within 7 days. If you do not apologize, a defamation claim of Rs7 billion will be filed.

In August, Farah Khan alias Farah Gogi – a close friend of former first lady Bushra Khan who is the wife of former prime minister Imran Khan – has submitted her answer to the call-up notice by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore chapter.

The anti-graft watchdog had summoned Farah Gogi and 10 others including her mother Bushra Khan in an inquiry pertaining to money laundering and assets beyond means.

She submitted the response on behalf of all suspects through her lawyer.
